Volaris Launches Service from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Guadalajara, Mexico

Quote:
Volaris launched new service today from Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport to Guadalajara, giving passengers another convenient low-cost option for traveling to Mexico. The low-cost carrier will use Airbus A320 aircraft and will operate out of DFW’s International Terminal D three times a week to Guadalajara. Today’s first arrival was greeted with DFW’s traditional “shower of affection” water cannon salute.

“DFW welcomes Volaris as our newest airline,” said John Ackerman, executive vice president of global strategy and development at DFW Airport. “Mexico is a vital trade partner with Texas with more than 190 billion dollars in exports and imports combined. Texas generates more trade with Mexico than any other U.S. state, and represents 40 percent of DFW’s international traffic. The new service increases travel options for all customers to Mexico and will support more growth of the leisure travel market between Guadalajara and North Texas.”

“We are extremely excited to forge ahead with our expansion into the US via its most important cities, and that is the case with Dallas/Fort Worth, which according to the US Census Bureau, has a 39% Hispanic resident base,” said Holger Blankenstein, Volaris chief commercial officer. “Now they have a new option to visit family and friends in Mexico. Furthermore, our Customers in Mexico’s Perla Tapatía, as Guadalajara is commonly referred to locally, also benefit greatly from the extensive connectivity to visit family and friends on both sides of the border, especially given that we operate the largest destination offering from this city – to 20 international and 18 domestic destinations, averaging 525 flights per week.”

Volaris currently serves over 50 destinations in Mexico, the United States and Central America, and has the youngest fleet of any airline with an average aircraft age of four years among its 52 Airbus aircraft.

American Airlines is going to launch a new route from DFW to Beijing beginning in June 2.

Quote:
Discover Beijing: New Nonstop service from DFW to Beijing

Travelers planning to fly to Asia now have an additional option to add to their list. DFW proudly announces new nonstop service on American Airlines to Beijing. The daily flight operates on the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. On June 2, the aircraft will transition to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

With the addition of this route, DFW offers nonstop service to a total of three destinations in China, including Hong Kong and Shanghai, which DFW welcomed to the Airport last year. Customers now can reach Asia on six daily flights which includes Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, and Tokyo.

DFW’s traffic to Asia accounts for 11% of its total international traffic, proving that the expansion of service to Beijing is a major impact to the North Texas region. The new route will help strengthen trade and tourism opportunities, bridge ties for business relations, and boost economic growth.

With a mission to connect the world, 2015 has been off to a strong start in expanding air service globally. In April, DFW added new nonstop service to Mexico on two low-cost Mexican carriers, Viva Aerobus and Volaris, offering travelers more options to reach Mexico and Latin America.

DFW is one of the most ugly international airports IMO. The interiors are bland and so are most of the shops.

Not sure when you were last in DFW but Terminal D is pretty nice plus they have refurbished and renovated the other terminals recently.

Airports in the US are 100% functional!! Not much importance is given to aesthetics. The reasons for this includes the fact that a lot of taxpayers money is used to construct and refurbish the terminals, hence the contractors are accountable for every penny they spend. Besides that, a lot of contractors work on a project to avoid questions arising on issues of lobbying. When there are too many cooks, costs get exaggerated, but no one can question if they were partial towards one firm over the other when the tenders were issued!!

From a design perspective, Denver airport is probably the best in the US but still it is nowhere near the Asian and the Middle East hubs!!

Yeah, I agree. The Denver airport is pretty impressive. I like Seoul's airport, probably one of my favourite.

I didnt hate the delta terminal at DFW. It was fine. Decent BBQ place (for an airport) and everything seemed updated. But that was just me and 1 flying experience.

The rental car place near DFW seems REALLLLLY far from the terminals but thats just my opinion.

Archer Western to build new TEX Rail station at DFW airport in US



Quote:
The Terminal B station will serve as the last stop in TEX Rail's proposed 27-mile commuter rail project, which is currently being built by the Archer Western Herzog joint venture.
Quote:
It will begin service next year and also features a walkway connecting to the existing Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) station located adjacent to Terminal A.

TEXRail will extend from downtown Fort Worth, across north-east Tarrant County, through North Richland Hills and Grapevine, and into the airport’s Terminal B.
Quote:
This line is projected to serve 8,000 riders on a daily basis at nine stations by the end of the first year of operation and by 2035 the number is expected to increase to nearly 14,000.

All nine stations will include ticket vending, covered seating, lighting, as well as security cameras.

More exciting news.

Trump airport stimulus could speed construction of 6th terminal at DFW International


DSC02918(E2) by Pilot Andy Photography

Quote:
For DFW Airport, an increase in federal aviation dollars could permit or speed the construction of a sixth terminal, Hegarty said.
Quote:
The airport is in discussions with its largest tenant, American Airlines, about possibly building a sixth terminal, DFW Airport CEO Sean Donohue has said.

With the area’s population and economic growth, the airport’s existing 165 gates will not be enough to handle the region’s projected growth, he said. The proposed Terminal F could add about 30 gates. Donohue said in past discussions that he hopes to open a new terminal early in 2020 or soon after.
Quote:
A sixth terminal would put DFW “at the forefront of international airports,” Hegarty said.

“The intent would be to would make DFW one of the premier airports in the world,” Hegarty said, “taking (ideas from) some of the more recently built facilities, such as the airports in Singapore and Abu Dhabi, and applying them here.”
Quote:
The Obama administration never took action on the issue, but U.S. airline executives have asked Trump to consider doing so.

AA has stated they want a change to the horseshoe terminal concept. On Anet, they are posting they want a terminal more like IAH or PHX. Should be releasing a new masterplan soon.
